  1. Indeed, Ramana, that’s you, with slight modifications – no one is perfect.

    I did the test despite myself. Anyway, it’s Sunday afternoon when a bit of self indulgence is in order. It’s rather interesting as some of the questions – if you want to answer them properly – do assume some in-depth knowledge (of, say, Greek gods).

    How shall I put it, Ramana, with my head in my hands? “Wild Karma”! I did the test three times, just to be sure, as two or three questions left me with difficult choices; so I played the variants against the definite ones. Every single time my Karma, hope against hope, is still wild. Am now convinced that the test result largely depends on which Greek god and which Seuss character you most identify with is what will nail your Karma – retake the test as many times as you like. Doesn’t matter if you choose Blues, Classic Music or Hard Rock to tell your life’s story; if you stick with your god and your Seuss throughout, you are branded for life. I wish whoever inherits my Karma good luck.

    So, my dear Ramana, my burning question which Greek god do you (and any of your readers) most identify with?

    1. What is the narrative for “Wild Karma”?

      Just to ensure that I did not make a mistake, I went back to the quiz and I got the same result again. I chose Apollo the God of the Sun.

      1. What Dr. Seuss character did you pick, Rummuser? I chose Apollo too, surprise, surprise, because he was the god of rational thinking. I’m surprised they didn’t include Dionysus. I didn’t know any of the Dr. Suess characters except Horton, but I chose Thidwick because he seemed clueless but friendly.

    1. Why “sceptical”? So you DO take the test (and yourself) seriously by pointing out aspects YOU deem not to be covered. Let’s leave aside the obvious limitations of any test: Have you considered that taking the test in itself proves having “a sense of humour” and “not taking yourself too seriously”?

    2. I take you back to my earlier post on theory and practice. In practice you can be a Guru with a sense of humour. Just like I beceme with my quip on being grounded by my DIL.

  2. I haven’t taken the test – I’m having a “pathway” of my own right now that needs a lot of attention, weeds are moving in and disturbing my green and pleasant pasture – so it’s time to consider an individual retreat away at the beach, a few hours drive by bus…
